THE BRONX - Bronx constituents are voicing their frustrations over the political corruption that landed local elected officials in handcuffs this week.

Many residents say they're losing faith in the democratic process after learning of a bribery scheme involving Assemblyman Eric Stevenson, of the 79th District, and Assemblyman Nelson Castro, of the 86th District.

Castro is expected to resign on Monday as a part of a deal with the government and the Bronx district attorney.
